"If this is an consular ship, then where is the ambassador?"
"...with... Road Rage!"


I decided to do something in Japan that is perfectly legal which I could never do in Australia (at least not in NSW) - carry MP36 around in public with impunity!

Megatron demands breakfast!


Megatron demands dinner!


It was Astrotrain's day off


Alcohol as fuel?


"...glory to old Cybertruuuhh---" *bleccchh*


Megatron finds a book about himself at a bookstore


"Curse you, Prime!"


Open carry


Walking by two police officers with MP36 in hand - not breaking any law!


Megatron conquers a children's theme park


Admiring the setting sun from his newly conquered domain as families are forced to flee. Coincidentally at the park's closing time.


Giant kimono!


TakaraTOMY are currently promoting a new line of transforming robots called Drive Head.

Differences between Drive Head & Transformers includes:
* The "body" of the Drive Heads need to connect to a regular car (Tomica - Tomy's equivalent of Matchbox or Hot Wheels cars). I suppose that they'd be able to carry regular Tomicas too, but they would need special Drive Head cars that actually have the robots' heads inside them. Didn't see any stand-alone Drive Head cars - so far it's just the Drive Heads that they come with. I guess they can do Cross Head On, didn't try it.
* Mecha are non-sentient. They're piloted by 10 year old police officers. Yes, the story premise is that stupid.


In countries like Australia we view realistic looking toy guns as imitation firearms. But this is precisely how they are viewed in Japan...


This isn't a Transformers pic, but just to give you an idea of just how different the Japanese view toy guns, I found these air soft/BB guns at a toy store at the Nakamise shopping arcade just outside Sensou Temple in Tokyo.


That's it! Now that I'm back home, all further pics of MP36 will be taken from strictly inside my home. But it was fun being able to openly carry him around in public where I was legally able to do so.

More of my (and others') MP36 pics can be found on the MP36 review thread.

============================

Disclaimer: My comments are NOT intended to be a criticism of either countries' laws or social attitudes, merely an observation of how they differ from each other.
